Edition dataEdit

Hi! I left a new comment on the book task force discussion about edition data. --Micru (talk) 17:12, 10 May 2013 (UTC)


Babel lets you view and edit more than one language on Wikidata. Just add e.g. {{#babel:de-N|en-3|es-1|fr-2|nl-3|it-4|da-0}} to your user page. Best, Littledogboy (talk) 13:38, 28 August 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for the information. Very convenient. — Finn Årup Nielsen (fnielsen) (talk) 14:50, 28 August 2013 (UTC)

Journal aliases and Scandinavian authoritiesEdit

Hi Finn, re [1] I can use a bot to automatically put the English title into the label for all those language, using the title in the Danish official journal list as a guide. I have proposed that we add identifiers for the Danish journal list at Wikidata:Property proposal/Authority control#Danish Bibliometric Research Indicator (BFI) SNO/CNO, and a property for the 'level' (Niveau) assigned to these journals at Wikidata:Property proposal/Creative work#Danish Bibliometric Research Indicator (BFI) Level. I would appreciate it if you comment on those proposed properties - I don't know the Danish research evaluation system very well, except that it appears to be almost identical to the Australian system - to confirm they are of the right type, or improve the proposal. John Vandenberg (talk) 07:48, 6 March 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for bringing this up. The Finnish also has a publication site with levels: Årup Nielsen (fnielsen) (talk) 16:32, 14 April 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for letting me know about the Finns are doing. They have a level above '2', aptly named '3', and there are many journals with a rank of '-', which I havent yet understood the meaning of (possibly not yet assessed?). Their online database with 25,0000 records is linkable and has a lot of useful fields in it, so I've requested a property for their ID at Wikidata:Property_proposal/Authority_control#Jufo ID. I think I will do a comparison of Danish and Norwegian and Danish and Finnish levels before requesting properties for those, however if you know anyone who might be interested in that data, I can load it at their request.
User:JVbot is now loading the Danish SNO/CNO and level for journals which have an ERA ID as the first batch, which should be a very large subset of all the international journals. (It may duplicate a SNO if you have input an SNO already; a second pass will identify this and I will correct the data) Once the ID and levels are added, the bot add labels and descriptions in Danish, where those fields are currently have no value.(and I will notify you when that starts so you can spot check the results). The real fun will be after that, when the bot processes entries which have an ISSN in Wikidata but are not included in ERA, and then the entries which are 'new' Wikidata items because their ISSN does not yet appear in Wikidata. John Vandenberg (talk) 09:14, 17 April 2014 (UTC)

Direction of mergeEdit

Hi, you merged Q13378569 in Q12330340; however WhatLinksHere/Q12330340 is only used by one item while WhatLinksHere/Q13378569 is used by a dozen other items. Someone will have the trouble of fixing those broken links. Next time, it would be better to merge from the least-used item toward the most-used item. Cheers - LaddΩ chat ;) 14:50, 23 April 2014 (UTC)

Ok, I will be more careful next time. I just selected the lowest item. I have moved professions labeled with Q13378569 to Q12330340. — Finn Årup Nielsen (fnielsen) (talk) 18:55, 23 April 2014 (UTC)

Hello Fnielsen
For information, Danish and Kunstindex Danmark kunstværk-ID have been added to Crotos Thank you for having made me discover Martinus Rørbye. Best regards --Shonagon (talk) 21:38, 2 October 2015 (UTC)

Very nice display. I don't quite understand you remark about "Kunstindex Danmark kunstværk-ID" when I try, e.g., p2108=405987 I do not get a single item. — Finn Årup Nielsen (fnielsen) (talk) 01:14, 3 October 2015 (UTC)
The "Kunstindex Danmark kunstværk-ID" is just displayed with link under artworks, with other IDs for visual artworks ; and as option for making lists like List of artworks of Martinus Rørbye --Shonagon (talk) 09:31, 3 October 2015 (UTC)

sammenslutning/samarbejde mellem museerEdit

Hvordan fortæller man at museer er fusioneret, feks. her Q27496599. Se evt. da:Skagens Kunstmuseer. --Villy Fink Isaksen (talk) 07:50, 22 October 2016 (UTC)

Hmmm... Som jeg ser det var der en fond [2] der er ophørt. Museet hedder "MICHAEL OG ANNA ANCHERS HUS SAXILDS GAARD", så vidt jeg kan se. Jeg troede egentlig der skulle være en egenskab der hed "fusioneret med", men jeg kan ikke finde den. Så fonden er ophørt, men huset er der stadig? Blot overgået? — Finn Årup Nielsen (fnielsen) (talk) 13:05, 22 October 2016 (UTC)
Nu kaldes det åbenbart bare "Anchers Hus" også jvf. en folder jeg har derfra. --Villy Fink Isaksen (talk) 14:11, 22 October 2016 (UTC)
Måske er svaret er at det kommer an på hvordan samlingerne er organiseret. Inventarnummer synes at relatere sig til Anchers Hus og maleriet er måske stadig placeret der. For museet kan man vel bruge noget i retning af "del af". — Finn Årup Nielsen (fnielsen) (talk) 17:34, 24 October 2016 (UTC)
Jo, maleriet er stadig i Anchers Hus tidligere kaldet da:Michael og Anna Anchers Hus. --Villy Fink Isaksen (talk) 18:57, 24 October 2016 (UTC)

Reverting P972 on Q11866Edit

Hi Fnielsen, I noticed you reverted my edit here with summary "I don't understand the deletion". I will tell you: This item has both catalog (P972) with qualifier catalog code (P528) as well as P528 with qualifier P972. According to the talk page at P972 the recommended version is with P528 as statement and P972 as qualifier. So that is why I deleted this statement. Have a nice day! Q.Zanden questions? 15:19, 24 May 2017 (UTC)

I see no reason to delete that statement. I have attempted an argument here: [3]. — Finn Årup Nielsen (fnielsen) (talk) 19:44, 24 May 2017 (UTC)

WikiJournal article and topicEdit

Hi Finn, Should there be a link between Q30314335 and Q43997683, and if so, what sort of link? Evolution and evolvability (talk) 23:10, 29 November 2017 (UTC)

Hi! Very good question. I did not see Plasmodium falciparum erythrocyte membrane protein 1 (Q30314335). I suppose that Plasmodium falciparum erythrocyte membrane protein 1 (Q30314335) is a family of proteins and Plasmodium falciparum erythrocyte membrane protein 1 (Q43997683) is a description of a family of proteins. Furthermore the Wikipedia article associated with Plasmodium falciparum erythrocyte membrane protein 1 (Q30314335) is a description of a family of proteins. — Finn Årup Nielsen (fnielsen) (talk) 23:33, 29 November 2017 (UTC)

Danish Culture Canon (Q1269747)Edit

Hi Finn, this is incorrect usage of part of (P361). This should be replaced by another property. I would use catalog (P972). Can you change it? Should be easy job with petscan. Multichill (talk) 12:16, 16 December 2017 (UTC)

I am not sure you are right. --Villy Fink Isaksen (talk) 15:07, 16 December 2017 (UTC)
What do you mean by "you" , Villy? Me or Multichill? I think catalog would be better. — Finn Årup Nielsen (fnielsen) (talk) 17:20, 16 December 2017 (UTC)
I am not sure Multichill is right. --Villy Fink Isaksen (talk) 22:06, 16 December 2017 (UTC)
I know part of (P361) is wrong. If you have a better property than catalog (P972), go ahead and use that one. Multichill (talk) 22:20, 16 December 2017 (UTC)

I am wondering if we can get some arguments put forward. catalog (P972) seems ok to use to indicate a list membership, even though the list is not necessarily a catalogue in the usual sense. part of (P361) is a fairly general property and I think one should select another property if that is possible. — Finn Årup Nielsen (fnielsen) (talk) 16:56, 18 December 2017 (UTC)

Hi! I wonder whether exact match (P2888) is the best option to link lexemes to external databases, but it surely depends on. Could you please create an item for the target database with metadata about it? -- JakobVoss (talk) 17:21, 3 June 2018 (UTC)

@JakobVoss: DanNet (Q26932303) is the versionless item for the resource. I haven't created items for the versions of DanNet. One problem with the lexical resources is that they tend to have versions, so we would need a property for each version. ILI ID (P5063) and BabelNet ID (P2581) may be an exception. — Finn Årup Nielsen (fnielsen) (talk) 17:29, 3 June 2018 (UTC)
How could we make a connection between statements such as most (L2333) exact match (P2888) and DanNet (Q26932303)? The common URI namespace of DanNet seems to be, so this URI should be stated in DanNet (Q26932303). formatter URI for RDF resource (P1921) does not fit, URL (P2699) is to broad, isn't it?. What do you think about -- JakobVoss (talk) 07:10, 5 June 2018 (UTC)
@JakobVoss: Maybe I should contact the DanNet (Q26932303) and ask what their thoughts are. At the moment the domain redirects and we get 404 from instance URIs. — Finn Årup Nielsen (fnielsen) (talk) 12:00, 8 August 2018 (UTC)

turde (L11274)Edit

I tried url you put into exact match (P2888) there and it showed 404 Page not found. KaMan (talk) 11:49, 8 August 2018 (UTC)

Yes, the DanNet (Q26932303) URI does not resolve currently, but the URI is suppose to be that one, cf. Årup Nielsen (fnielsen) (talk) 11:58, 8 August 2018 (UTC)

Help us improving the user experience of Lexicographical DataEdit


I’m Jan, doing research on user experience in the Wikidata team. I’m currently discussing with people who are editing Lexemes, in order to understand their needs better, and improve their experience with the interface.

We noticed that you have been actively editing Lexemes recently (thank you for that!) and we would love to have a discussion with you about what you’re doing, how you work, what motivates you to create Lexemes, and how you imagine reusing the data later.

This discussion would take place as an individual interview with one of our designers. Via the communication platform of your choice, you’ll be able to share your screen, show how you’re currently editing the data and chat with us. The discussion would take between 30 and 60 min, we will set up the appointment depending on when you are available. Depending on your preferred language, the discussion can happen in English, German or French.

If you’re interested, feel free to reply to this message or send me an email:

If you don’t want to be contacted by us on this topic anymore, please let me know.

Thanks a lot for your help, Jan Dittrich (WMDE) (talk) 11:37, 16 August 2018 (UTC)

Danish has no genitive caseEdit

I noticed you added genitive case forms to søndag (L21643), but according to w:Danish grammar, there are no cases in Danish. The possessive is considered an enclitic. —Rua (mew) 18:48, 17 September 2018 (UTC)

Thanks for making me aware of the concept of enclitic. Danish: A Comprehensive Grammar (Q54140873) pages 47+ speaks of "The genitive" for Danish nouns and the book does not mention "enclitic" (not at least according to the index). So I wonder where that leaves us? — Finn Årup Nielsen (fnielsen) (talk) 22:20, 17 September 2018 (UTC)
The Wikipedia article explains why the "genitive" is not a case. The ending -s is not attached to the noun, but to the last word in the phrase. This means that any word that can appear at the end of a genitive phrase has a genitive form, even verb forms and prepositions. The article gives a few examples. The English possessive enclitic -'s works exactly the same, and it's not considered a genitive case either. —Rua (mew) 16:19, 18 September 2018 (UTC)
Nevertheless, Wiktionary's wikt:søndag (and Swedish wikt:söndag) does have genitive. It is very rare that an -s is added to a verb or preposition, but very common in nouns. If you want to alienate Wiktionary users, try to teach them how grammar works. --LA2 (talk) 17:25, 26 October 2018 (UTC)

Neutral forms of Danish nounsEdit

Shouldn't gammel (L31494) and ung (L31497) have neutral forms (gammelt, ungt)? --LA2 (talk) 17:21, 26 October 2018 (UTC)

Def for lexemeEdit

Hi Fnielsen, what's your opinion on Wikidata:Property_proposal/periphrasis? It seems to linger there for a while and now that we have sense, I think it would be useful. --- Jura 07:08, 8 November 2018 (UTC)

Property proposal for Imagenet synset?Edit

I'm wondering if you might be interested in reviving your property proposal for Wordnet synset ID? I'm doing more with GLAM organizations and image recognition, and this would be quite a valuable thing to have not as just an "exact match" but as a proper property. I think this would be rather easy to pass since there were all supports previously - Wikidata:Property_proposal/Wordnet_synset_ID. Thanks! -- Fuzheado (talk) 11:19, 4 January 2019 (UTC)

@Fuzheado: Yes we could do that. There are some issues, some of which was mentioned in Linking ImageNet WordNet Synsets with Wikidata (Q50347076). If we would like to be LOD'ish and like ImageNet synsets, then we should go for the specific version WordNet 3.0. It seems that the linguists have moved on to WordNet 3.1 and there are no good URI resolver for 3.0. We could also suggest both. There are a good number of BabelNet identifiers. It might be that going from Wikidata via BabelNet to WordNet 3.0 is possible. I haven't explored. For the Danish parallel to WordNet, DanNet (Q26932303), there is a Wikidata property for words (not synsets, yet), see, e.g., champagne (L40806). I suppose similar items could be relevant for WordNet. — Finn Årup Nielsen (fnielsen) (talk) 00:37, 9 January 2019 (UTC)

Source for P2763 listEdit

Hi, I'm trying to upload several protection area IDs to WD.

In Danish protected area ID (P2763) case, I can't find the search web or directory web to get the list. The generated link from ID send to a PDF pages, but I'm looking for some place with the list to go there. I see you upload several P2763, as Ø Bakker (Q3593711), and Probably you may help me. Thanks, Amadalvarez (talk) 07:33, 2 February 2019 (UTC)

@Amadalvarez: Good question. I refound it here . The ID is somewhat hidden, e.g., under "Fredningen og dens pleje" for "Link til fredningskendelse". I am not sure how to get to a page with a list of the IDs. — Finn Årup Nielsen (fnielsen) (talk) 18:16, 2 February 2019 (UTC)
Hard work !, not only but the manual task, but because I never know if I entry the full list. Well, this is the live of wikipedians. I will continue looking and, if I find it, I will inform you. Thanks, Amadalvarez (talk) 06:47, 3 February 2019 (UTC)

Strange gender on L41136Edit


Are you sure about grammatical gender (P5185) = nexual noun (Q61053035) on nydelse (L41136)? It seems strange (wouldn't it be better in instance of (P31)?) and it triggers a contraint violation.

Cdlt, VIGNERON (talk) 10:10, 12 February 2019 (UTC)

duplicate paper added?Edit

Hi - I'm wondering why you recently added Q65952270 - specifically what your procedure for that was, because it was a duplicate (with a slightly mangled title) of The Meaning-Frequency Relationship of Words (Q57623197), which you also added almost a year ago. I've merged them now, but it would be nice not to have to try to catch these after the fact! ArthurPSmith (talk) 17:10, 13 August 2019 (UTC)

@ArthurPSmith: I don't know. I have no recollection of adding it the first time. I usually check up based on the title. I suppose that I misspelt the title the second time and that was the reason I did not find it... — Finn Årup Nielsen (fnielsen) (talk) 19:47, 13 August 2019 (UTC)
Ok - probably best to check via DOI and/or pubmed ID as well if possible... ArthurPSmith (talk) 19:50, 13 August 2019 (UTC)

WordNet propertyEdit

Hi! I was looking to see whether Wikidata had a property for linking to WordNet synsets and I came across Wikidata:Property_proposal/Wordnet_synset_ID from almost exactly two years ago. I note that the proposal was withdrawn because of concerns about consistency between WordNet versions and canonical formats. Do you think there would be any interest in resurrecting that proposal? CC @MB-one Cheers, Bovlb (talk) 02:03, 15 August 2019 (UTC)

@Bovlb, MB-one: Yeah. What I have done for DanNet (Q26932303) is to tie the property to a specific version of the resource. We could tie WordNet synset properties to 3.0 and 3.1. (Note that we also have the ILI identifier (ILI ID (P5063)) — Finn Årup Nielsen (fnielsen) (talk) 07:50, 15 August 2019 (UTC)

text-to-lexemes EnglishEdit

Nice tool .. For English, it could be interesting if the lowercase form was searched directly, e.g. [7].

BTW, when calling Special:NewLexeme, it's also possible to append the language (&lexeme-language=Q1860) and category (&lexicalcategory=Q1084). Maybe a basic selection of the later could be offered on ordia/search --- Jura 13:38, 15 September 2019 (UTC)
